Your Engineering Team Will Love
A fantastic way to reward your hardworking engineering team is to provide them with something your engineering team will love; an engineering themed team-building activity! These activities can help your engineering staff get on their feet and out of their comfort zones while they work together to accomplish a feasible goal.
From sandcastle-building to robot battles, team-building activities help individuals improve their problem-solving, creative, and soft skills by establishing a practice of effective communication between co-workers. Team-building activities are especially helpful for those who have a hard time expressing themselves, struggle with shyness, or worry that their colleagues haven’t accepted them.
Through team-building exercises, team members can release their personal tensions in a creative and constructive way—which can help to prevent potential conflicts in the future. Keep reading to discover three team-building activities your engineering team will love.
Robot Team-Building & Battling
Want to create a cool robot and participate in a battle for the best? Consider signing-up your engineering team for a robot team-building event. After each team of five or six engineers create their robots, they can enter their robot in a fighting competition. It’s an engaging, heart-pumping event that your team won’t forget.
Participating in an escape room activity is a fantastic way to get your team to work together. The goal is to get out of a room as quickly as possible. Escape rooms involve puzzle-solving, investigating clues, and establishing communication between members to accomplish their goals.
Escape rooms are fun, cog-turning team-building activities that give each member a chance to shine and beat previous record times. Escape rooms can also have different themes to make participants feel immersed.
Sandcastle Team Building
While sandcastle-building may seem like an average beach activity, this team-building exercise can teach your engineering teams how to work together to create unbelievable sculptures taught by master sandcastle-builders. Each group of engineers must carefully plot and build their sandcastle masterpieces while working together against the clock, getting them out of their comfort zones.
It’s a fun way to get creative juices flowing—and, after they complete their sculptures—the sandcastles can last for days, creating fun photo opportunities.
